Why Join?

OCAAJO was officially launched on December 11, 2020 with an inaugural event which was an intimate virtual fireside chat with California’s newest Supreme Court Justice and outgoing Judicial Appointments Secretary, the Honorable Martin J. Jenkins. In an added surprise for the over 150 attendees at the event was Secretary Luis Céspedes, who made his debut in Orange County as the new California Judicial Appointments Secretary and Justice Jenkins’ successor.  We were honored to have the California Judges Association partner with us on this event. Justice Jenkins and Mr. Céspedes delivered incredibly encouraging words about, among other things, their respective efforts to diversify California’s courts and the importance of associations like OCAAJO in promoting public trust and confidence in the courts.

Our mission is clear, our objectives to facilitate our mission are sure, and the projects we have in the works to achieve our objectives are well-defined.

Join us and be a part of this truly dedicated group of judicial officers, sitting and retired, who are committed to ensuring equal access to justice and equal justice to all, as the constitutions of this state and nation provide.
